. if you think there is such thing, you're basically pretty stupid. you're not properly educated, because we're very clever. but it is a matter of opinion. you say this is the case. i say, that's your opinion. well, if there's so thing as truth, then there's no such things as lies and consequently we're living in an area where people are suggestible to lies s and propaganda and can no longer distinguish between truth and lies, and that has preoccupied me a great deal. now, because there's no such thing as truth, what has come in is kind of power. no such thing as truth. my opinion is the same as your opinion. everything is relative. so what then happens is that i'm going to show that my view of the world is going to win over you view of the world. so it becomes a contest of power groups, if you like. and all these ideologies are power groupings, all these "isms," the believe there is nothing in the world, the universe, that can't be explained by actually empirical, demonstrable and facts and evidence. nothing beyond yourselves. nothing beyond the material world. and yao you till tearannis

was also nominated by president obama to serve in her role as assistant secretary of education for civil rights and she was confirmed by the senate in may of 2009. as assistant secretary, ruslyn is assistant secretary arnie's duncan's primary advisor. before she joined the department of education she was vice president of the education trust in washington, dc and was the founding executive of education trust west in oakland. in these positions she advocated for public school students in california, focusing on achievement and opportunity gaps, improving can urriculum and instructional quality and ensuring quality education for everybody. she served as an advisor on education issues on a number of private ipbs institutions, she is a teacher, a lawyer, and a very influential voice on all policy matters. she was also passionate about ending this issue of bullying and bringing everyone together to stop this disturbing trend so please welcome assistant secretary for civil rights, ruslyn lee. as i said, our moderator is not always our lieutenant governor, of course he needs to introducti
the best education possible. because in a few years the kids that i am investing in middle school will be the employees of the best companis in san francisco if not the ceos. >> educational fundingwise it's the responsibility of the state and now san francisco is giving fund money to basically back fill the school district, where they have undergone an annual budget cut. >> the rainy-day fund that we established years ago was one of the biggest contributors to the education budget. but we're not even satisfied with that, because when we do those investments, then somehow the state can't get their act together, but now i think governor brown has got his hold on this. we're see something light there. and we're watching what the federal government does, so it doesn't hurt us and at the same time we're making more and more investments to our kids and families. >> let's go to the big burning issue at the moment, san francisco city college, and is san francisco mayor ed lee going to step forward and bail out city college to its keep accreditation, in the same way that the city has st
.s. attorney, representatives from the department of education confirm if we don't do anything about it, 13 million kids will become victims again for another year. some 3 million kids across the country will decide it is better to leave their school grounds than to continue their education. there will be more stupblting of the emotional and educational growth of our kids. all across the bay, whether working here in san francisco or alameda or sonoma or santa clara county. i want to thank you law enforcement officials here, instructors, community advocates, people who are concerned about our kids, they are our future and i would love to see a new generation of kids who don't know what bully is, who are not victims, who don't have those scars. but we've got to do today is sharing in the best practices, to be encouraged by programs like our roof top school here in san francisco who has traded a 50-person ambassador class that will talk about this, that will invite other kids, school administrators who have received the support of our school site administrators to encourage them to get this
educate. but we must go beyond thinking more rigor will get us better achievement. we have to remember a school is a community and in a xhuept, people look out for each other. they've got each other's back. how do we begin to promote that idea that we are in this thing together? we believe it's through, unfortunately but truly, self-interest. kids are driven developmentally by the desire to fit in, to belong, to be part of an affinity group. if we can capitalize on their desire to look out for their friends and give them some more tools and opportunities and support, they will begin to do what we need them to do to at least confront it in their own small cell of social influence and the compounding and leveraging of that begins to make change. so the question we have to ask ourselves, are we as adults willing it slow down enough to invite kids to sit down at the table with us and partner? do we have the courage to understand that inclusion takes time and we have have to work more diligently to i invite young people, particularly marginalized young people, to take part. >> you menti
american education. but certainly what when the most about, british education. it basically said it is important. the child is an autonomous meaning maker. it means that the child looks at him or herself and the world around. it's like saying, going to the jungle. you're going to find her own way. that is what we have done in the classroom. it guides the child into the world. giving the child a mental map by which they can make sense of the world. the teacher is saying to the child, you are an adult. we don't have to teach adults. we don't have to guide adults. adults are not people. a child needs to be guided and i think more than that, i tried to explain it, this didn't come from nowhere. we are responsible for ourselves. this includes the intellectual map to guide in the transition of knowledge. we are not going to say to the child, it's illegal, don't do this. we are going to say to the child , here's the information. they're all good information that you could use or chemicals and here's information about them. that is teaching the child to be a premature adult. as they adul
and grandson of classroom teachers, as a father myself and as someone for whom education played a central role in my life, as a passionate believer in the power of education to change others' lives, i rise today to talk about a bill that is one of the most important to me that i have moved as a senator. mr. coons: the fact is, if we look at the american national condition, lack of access to higher education, lack of an opportunity for quality education. it's one of the greatest problems we face. iinequality in having some real hope, some real promise of a shot at college defines and distinguishes the driver of social inequality in america in ways that it hasn't in decades. if we want to ensure going forward that american workers can compete in the global economy, if we want to ensure a county that is capable of living up to our promise of liberty and justice for all, if we want to deal with one of the biggest civil rights issues i think in our country, then we have to ensure every child has an equal chance for a high-quality education regardless of the zip code they're born into. madam preside

ago was one of the biggest contributors to the education budget. but we're not even satisfied with that, because when we do those investments, then somehow the state can't get their act together, but now i think governor brown has got his hold on this. we're see something light there. and we're watching what the federal government does, so it doesn't hurt us and at the same time we're making more and more investments to our kids and families. >> let's go to the big burning issue at the moment, san francisco city college, and is san francisco mayor ed lee going to step forward and bail out city college to its keep accreditation, in the same way that the city has stepped forward and helped the public schools? i know that is a tough question. >> it is, but let me say this. it's a tough question, but it's also one that is easily answered because of our constant investment and my approach towards the role of education. community college is an incredible institution in san francisco. it is where people in their mid-careers need additional skills to meet the market demands of a new
and india are investing heavily in research and education in science and engineering with ambition goals in terms of increasing numbers and improving quality. to this audience, i think the reason is clear. investment, insight and engineering and investment in basic research and education at all levels are investments in a nation's future. it's economic growth and an ton my, quality of life for its citizens and international leadership. china started ramping up the investments in the late 1990s. india followed suit by the early 2000s. first and foremost, it is about investing in people, students, faculty, and researchers. second, it is about investing in infrastructure, campus, facility, and industry university research parks. third, it is about investing in ideas. funding for basic research improve pursuit of scientific discovery and technological innovation. let look in more detail at china first. since the 1990s steady investment by the ministry of science and technology, the national science foundation of china, the ministry of education, and the ministry information technology has tr
but also the mental heah aspect. where education is needed and we need to have a broader conversation instead of politicized -- >> tell me what aspect of mental health are you getting out here? to me, if a young woman, girl, child, whatever you want to call her is old enough to get pregnant i would say -- or possibly be pregnant to remember plan b doesn't abort a pregnancy it just stops a pregnancy from taking place. why isn't she old enough to make the decision that i'm too young to have this child. >> you can make the decision to be sexually active and make decision to handle the decisions around that. this speaks to where sex education is needed where we need to be more pro-active about educating young women about the emotional burred then comes with sexual activity at a youngz that makes perfect sense. tell us more about what you're talking about emotionally. what should the emotional survey be that you want to see before you decide whether this is a good move or not? >> i think 'about making -- frankly i think this conversation needs to come in even to the abortion debate and oth
approach towards the role of education. community college is an incredible institution in san francisco. it is where people in their mid-careers need additional skills to meet the market demands of a new workforce. it is where many people who don't make it into berkeley and stanford and all the great institutions come to get an great educational start. it's where a lot of economically-challenged families invest in their kids. it is where veterans, returning from afghanistan and iran and iraq come because they are not ready yet to apply to the big universities. they are smart enough to do that, but they want to get going at city college. >> do you see the city in this budget cycle actually carving out a dollar amount? >> here is what we're doing, because i don't think it is always to be measured by the amount of money you give for bailouts. i have been paying personal attention to their accreditation program. i have had interim chancellor scott in my office and i had the state chancellor, who is in charge of accreditation in my office, on the phone, on a monthly basis. i have worked di
